Posted on October 30, 2020 by John Harris

Betting is equal parts fun and equal parts risk. So, it can be said that it’s a game for the bold. Take the presidential odds, for example. There is so much anticipation behind it. It’s not just the Americans that are crazed about it, but also people from all parts of the world. 

It is such a grand event, after all. People can’t wait to be placing wagers on this election. If you are one of those fun-loving few, we have a little something to help you with. Here are the betting mistakes you should be avoiding.
